A nice plug

A nice plug for my latest poetry collection from the crackerjack poet Tim Suermondt:

The Catastrophe of my Personality is intelligent, moving, and often funky. And what I really like is that the poems, like the best of poems, aren’t afraid to converse with the strangeness of the world and thus make the poet’s personal strangeness universal. ‘The river is languorous/because we want the river/to be languorous.’ Who says poetry makes nothing happen? The poetry in this book makes many things happen, even the miraculous, and we’re all the better because of it. They’re all fine, but the poems that struck me in particular were “Paper Dolls” “Last Night I went to Kenneth Street” “Sleeping in a Box” “Why Gayla” “Art and Love” “Steal this Love” “Picture of the Poet Reading” “Only without God” and “Tell Me How Tomorrow Will Be.”
